Number of tourists travelling to Latvia continues to rise in 2nd quarter

In the second quarter of 2015, there were 411,700 foreign visitors in Latvian accommodation establishments, which is 4.7% more than in the second quarter of 2014.

According to the data of the Central Statistical Bureau, the number of visitors in Latvian accommodation establishments increased from all of the main tourism markets of Latvia – except Russia. The number of visitors from Russia reduced by 37%.

Inese Šīrava, Acting Director at the Latvian Tourism Development Agency TAVA, commented: "The latest statistical data confirm once again the strength and attractiveness of tourism opportunities in Latvia. Taking into consideration a substantial reduction in the number of Russian tourists, we can be pleased that tourists from Western countries fully compensated for this reduction, and the overall number of tourists has even increased."

The number of German tourists exceeded the number of travellers from Russia, who formerly accounted for the largest part of travellers to Latvia.
